Well Mario, you can talk about hipocrisy, victims and theft all day long. The simple fact of the matter is that pirates are not just going to stop some day, this is a problem that will persist and get gradually worse, this is the nature of digital media and the internet. The industry is pushing towards a totalitarian approach of censorship and control, what they really should be doing is thinking up ways to give consumers a usable alternative to pirating.
One of the big ISPs here in Denmark is offering music for free, to download, legally, to all their paying customers. I believe they have around a million or so tracks, no DRM, no nothing. They just cut a deal with the record companies, and then pay for it using their ISP profits, as an extra service. To the consumers, the advantage is significant: No shady torrent sites, constant high bitrates and it's all legal.
Why aren't more companies doing this? How long will it take them to adapt? Surely, part of running a succesful business is adapting to change, such as the internet and digital media.
